  06/22/21 - Keithron LeerFr/2025, Texas, 5-08, 175 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Brazos County police records indicate Lee was arrested on Sunday for assault after allegedly strangling his girlfriend in an apartment complex in Bryan. Records say Lee was released on a $5,000 bond. According to a probable cause statement, an officer was dispatched to the Highland Villas Apartments where a juvenile claimed she had been assaulted by her boyfriend. The injuries sustained were consistent in a strangulation, according to police, and the juvenile had a bloody lip. At one point during the altercation, the juvenile told police that she hid in a closet and Lee said, "I'll give you something to cry about." The report states then Lee "started to strangle her again." "We're aware of the situation with Keithron Lee," Sarkisian said in a statement released by UT. "We have talked with his family and he has been suspended from all team activities at this time as we continue to monitor the legal process." - Austin American Statesman

  06/06/21 - Keilan RobinsonJr/2023, Texas, 5-09, 190 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  Former Alabama running back Keilan Robinson is transferring to Texas, he announced Sunday evening. Robinson entered the NCAA transfer portal last week. He opted out of last season after rushing for 254 yards as a freshman in 2019. He re-joins former Tide offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, now Texas' head coach. Sarkisian also picked up sixth-year outside linebacker Ben Davis in the transfer portal from Alabama earlier this offseason. Alabama had listed the speedy Robinson as a running back and wide receiver for its spring game in April, but weeks later the program added needed speed at receiver in Ohio State transfer Jameson Williams. - Birmingham News

  06/02/21 - Keilan RobinsonJr/2023, Texas, 5-09, 190 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  Alabama's talented offensive backfield will have one fewer member this fall. Keilan Robinson, a rising junior, entered the NCAA transfer portal Tuesday afternoon, AL.com learned. The Washington DC product didn't play as a sophomore last season but was back at practice this spring. He had one carry for five yards in the A-Day game in April. Alabama figures to have a stack running back room this fall even after losing first-round draft pick Najee Harris. Brian Robinson is back for a fifth year as the top returning rusher after netting 483 yards on 91 carries as the backup to Harris. Robinson came to Alabama as a four-star prospect and the No. 15 running back in the 2019 class that also included Sanders. He gained 254 yards on 39 carries as a true freshman in a reserve role in 2019. A 74-yard touchdown against New Mexico State was the highlight of his only season on the field in Tuscaloosa. - Birmingham News

  04/27/21 - Ben DavisrSr/2022, Texas, 6-3, 250 (DS#37 OLB) + More +

  A former Alabama linebacker is set to join Steve Sarkisian at Texas. Ben Davis, the one-time five-star recruit who was a backup for the Crimson Tide last season, announced Monday that he's transferring to Texas. Davis was the top-ranked player in Alabama's 2016 recruiting class but was never able to carve out a starting role with the Tide and entered the NCAA transfer portal in February. The Gordo product played in 11 games as a backup last season and finished the year with three tackles. - Birmingham News

  Former New Mexico State Aggies linebacker Devin Richardson announced on Twitter his decision to transfer to the Texas Longhorns. Richardson, who was a three-star prospect out of Klein, was named to the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-American team after recording 69 tackles, three tackles for loss, two sacks, and three forced fumbles. The Aggies didn't play last season due to COVID-19, leaving Richardson with three years of eligibility remaining and should make an immediate impact at Texas. - Burnt Orange Nation

  04/22/21 - Jordan WhittingtonrSo/2024, Texas, 6-0, 209 (DS#9 WR) + More +

  Jordan Whittington's mind is far more durable than his body. When Texas coaches wondered about his ability to stay healthy, he just kept working. When fans henpecked him on social media, Whittington showed keyboard-proof positivity. Now in his third season with just six games on his college ledger, Whittington is eager to show everyone that there's still a dynamic playmaker inside that chiseled 6-foot-1, 206-pound frame. "You know, my body's been feeling amazing," Whittington said after Tuesday's practice. "The offense is great. And I think this spring has been a real eye-opener for me just as much as I've developed as a receiver and just seeing this offense and what it can do, it's going to be amazing." Whittington was a superstar at Cuero. It was assumed he'd come to Texas and keep it going. But he aggravated a sports hernia injury first suffered in high school and essentially needed it fixed once and for all. He ended up redshirting in 2019. Last season, Whittington started the opener and then missed two games. He returned against Oklahoma and caught a career-high 10 passes for 65 yards. But then he missed the next three games because of another injury. - Austin American Statesman

  04/19/21 - David GbendarSo/2024, Texas, 6-0, 228 (DS#30 OLB) + More +

  When Texas coach Steve Sarkisian says every player has a clean slate, it means a clean slate. David Gbenda is using his to reshape his college career. The sophomore linebacker from Katy has shown flashes of real athleticism the last two seasons. In 2019, the previous coaching staff asked him to play running back when depth became an issue. Then last season, he went back to defense and had solid impacts against Oklahoma, Kansas State and Colorado in the Alamo Bowl.

The Texas linebackers corps needs more playmakers, especially now that Juwan Mitchell has transferred out. Gbenda (pronounced bend-a) is ready for all the opportunities this new staff will provide. "David Gbenda has been terrific. Been very, very impressed with him," Sarkisian said this week. "He is flying around the football field, playing physical. He's got a real leader's mentality." Other teammates have noticed, too. "David's communication skills are very good," defensive tackle Keondre Coburn said. "He's going to be a very exciting player coming up this year. So I'm really excited for him." - Austin American Statesman

  04/12/21 - Tyler OwensJr/2023, Texas, 6-2, 205 (DS#37 SS) + More +

  With senior linebacker Juwan Mitchell in the NCAA transfer portal, it appears the Texas Longhorns are addressing the need at linebacker with a position change, spinning junior safety Tyler Owens down towards the line of scrimmage. As Owens alludes to in his tweet, senior DeMarvion Overshown made a similar move last season that paid off for the Arp product with a productive season, including 60 tackles, eight tackles for loss, a sack, four quarterback hurries, and two interceptions. But with Overshown out for the spring due to shoulder surgery, there's an opportunity for someone like Owens to emerge. A high school track standout who ran a 10.3 100m at Plano East, Owens was a fast-rising product late in the 2019 recruiting class, eventually finishing the cycle as a Longhorns signee and a top-10 safety ranked just outside the top-100 nationally in the 247Sports Composite rankings. During the 2019 season, Owens appeared in 13 games, starting against TCU due to injuries, finishing the year with eight total tackles. - Burnt Orange Nation

  04/10/21 - Joshua MoorerJr/2023, Texas, 6-1, 170 (DS#12 WR) + More +

  The only senior at the wideout position is Yoakum product Joshua Moore, who's coming off his best season in burnt orange. While his numbers don't jump off the page (30 receptions, 472 yards, 9 touchdowns), his performance against Colorado left most Texas fans encouraged. Moore caught two touchdowns to go along with five receptions and 85 yards in what was arguably his best game all-season since starting the year by accumulated four touchdowns and 200 yards in the first two games against UTEP and Texas Tech. But outside of an eight-reception effort against Oklahoma - a career-high - Moore largely disappeared from the Texas offense. In the final five regular-season games, Moore only caught six passes. But the good news for Texas fans is the answer for Moore's lack of production can be blamed for the offense he was playing in, rather than on him. Tom Herman's offense was rigid and lacked the imagination that can be found in Steve Sarkisian's offense. Another reason to be excited? Like Smith, expect Moore to play the X wide receiver position, but Sarkisian doesn't like to limit receivers to just one position and will move them around on the field constantly. - Austin American Statesman

  03/24/21 - DeMarvion OvershownSr/2022, Texas, 6-3, 217 (DS#8 OLB) + More +

  When the Texas Longhorns start spring practice on Tuesday for the first time under new head coach Steve Sarkisian and the first time in two seasons, junior linebacker DeMarvion Overshown is among seven players who will not participate due to injuries, the school announced on Monday. Entering his second season as a starter at linebacker, Overshown recently underwent surgery on his shoulder to correct a torn labrum. Since Overshown has not spent a full offseason at the position and wanted to gain weight to better handle the demands of playing closer to the line of scrimmage, it's a disappointing development for him and for the team. He's expected to return at some point in the summer before preseason training camp begins. - Burnt Orange Nation

  Texas Longhorns defensive end Marqez Bimage entered the NCAA transfer portal on Monday, according to reports. With the loss of Jack linebacker Joseph Ossai to the 2021 NFL Draft as an early entrant and Bimage's entrance into the transfer portal, Texas is thin at the pass-rusher position, although new head coach Steve Sarkisian has officially added LSU graduate transfer Ray Thornton there and holds a commitment from Notre Dame grad transfer Ovie Oghoufo. Bimage opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns and was initially expected to return to the team. - Burnt Orange Nation

  02/15/21 - Ben DavisrSr/2022, Texas, 6-3, 250 (DS#37 OLB) + More +

  A local prep star who came to Alabama with high expectations announced Monday he intends to explore options elsewhere. Ben Davis, the No. 10 overall recruit in the class of 2016, said he entering the NCAA transfer portal in a Twitter post. AL.com confirmed his name appeared in the portal shortly after making the announcement. The Gordo High School graduate will be using the extra year of eligibility granted to every player participating in the 2020 season. It would have been his fourth and final season on the NCAA clock after he redshirted his freshman season of 2016. Davis appeared in 24 total games and recorded seven tackles in a reserve role. - Birmingham News

  Former Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger started and threw a touchdown pass in the Reese's Senior Bowl on Saturday. Ehlinger only appeared in the first quarter of Saturday's Senior Bowl, which was played in Mobile, Ala. Over those 15 minutes, Ehlinger completed four of his 10 passes. He finished with 42 passing yards, 12 of which were picked up on a touchdown toss to former UCLA running back Demetric Felton. Ehlinger's National Team ended up earning a 27-24 win. The National Team built a 10-0 lead with Ehlinger as its quarterback. - Austin American Statesman

  The former Notre Dame defensive end announced Tuesday on Twitter that he plans to graduate transfer to Texas. Oghoufo entered the transfer portal earlier this month following his junior season with the Irish. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Oghoufo played in 11 games last season as a backup at the vyper defensive end position and on special teams. He recorded 10 tackles, two pass breakups, 1.5 sacks and one quarterback hurry while working in a rotation with graduate senior Daelin Hayes and sophomore Isaiah Foskey. - South Bend Tribune

  Another Texas Longhorns player will take advantage of the extra year of eligibility afforded by the NCAA due to the coronavirus pandemic, as defensive end Jacoby Jones announced Tuesday that he will return for a fifth season overall and third season on the Forty Acres. As a junior, Jones was a rotational player who appeared in 11 games with 14 tackles and one forced fumble. In 2020, he served as the backup to Moro Ojomo at defensive end. - Burnt Orange Nation
